How do you feel about premade palettes or quads? Does it make you rejoice for having already put-together color combinations? Do you get frustrated because they’re altogether in one? Love ‘em or hate ‘em, tell me why!

P.S. – How is your weekend going?  I’m sure some of you are on a long, holiday weekend… lucky for you!

Thanks to Google for alerting us when Polki updated with the latest info on the re-release of Slimshines!  (It is so great to be asleep and see the alert in the morning, all the leg work is done, yes!)  The launch of Slimshines will feature seven new shades as well as several relaunches (as per Specktra) of past shades.  I am surprised Kissable wasn’t there, as I remember that was a fan favorite.  Oh, well, I never use mine myself!

How do you feel about Slimshines?  Did you love them before?  Happy they’re returning?

If you were using MAC Juxt eyeshadow, what look would you create with it? What shadows would you use? What would you use on cheeks? Anything added to the lips?

Create a look using whatever you want, as long as you include Juxt! Feel free to share links to photos of your look(s) using it in the comments.

Do you prefer your lip gloss to be sticky or non-sticky? Do you prefer a smooth, soft, non-tacky formula or are you down with the tackiness that everyone associates with MAC lipglass?

I am pleased to announce the launch of Temptalia’s new layout, just in time for 2008. The web team has been working around-the-clock these past few days to get it up and running, so I want to extend a huge thanks to them for all of their hard work and effort! Feel free to leave feedback concerning the new layout, positive or negative, as well as if you happen to come across any bugs.  Happy new year!

New Features:

  • Brands – now find the latest posts for your favorite brands
  • Most popular posts / featured posts
  • Better integration of content

As part of our launch of a new layout, we would also like to invite and encourage you to participate in a survey concerning your satisfaction with the site, what you’d like to see in the future, and overall, give us a clearer idea of what’s working, what isn’t, and what we should concentrate on.  Your participation helps improve the site for both yourself and other readers, so please think of filling it out – it’s only ten questions!

To take the survey… Continue reading →
